Forum: software Subject: Why was my item removed?

Hello,

Within minutes of me putting up some Software Demos, my item was taken down. These demos were freely available to download online back in the year 2000, so I'm assuming this was done by mistake? The item identifier is: mms-lost-formulas-demos

Any help or explanation would be appreciated. I didn't mean to step on any toes here.

It appears the files failed the virus scanner. For example mmgetoutoftown.exe:

From my experience uploading old demos these came packaged with adware which some of these scanners flag. Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done about it as far as I know.

It looks like the executable for the full version of the game is also getting flagged, so it's most likely a false positive. Oh well. Thank you for the explanation though!
